ESCC and Goebells unlikely bedfellows.

Have a look at the following extract from an official document from ESCC .Although its about deer deaths you can get some idea of the mindset of the council.As stated before the council is obsessed about being seen in a good light.Stories are released to tame journalists(hello Newsquest)so that the council has control over what is being published which is not always the same as the truth.The most disturbing part of it is the continual reference to the Police.

In general terms, East Sussex County Council will
take the lead on media handling. However,
information flow between partners must be high and
Sussex Police should be alerted to any response
given to the media
Media relations:
1. We will keep target journalists fully informed
by issuing standard press releases and
offering suitable news and feature stories
linked to the scheme’s key messages (see
below for a full list of key messages)

A second extract is seen below which clearly mentions changing peoples behaviour and perception and countering any negative media comments.

Required outcome
(change in perception
and/or behaviour)
1. To inform drivers of the actions they need to
take if they see a dead or injured deer on
any road in East Sussex
2. To ensure stakeholders are fully briefed on
the background and aims of the scheme
3. Maintain general public support by keeping
them informed about the scheme
4. Counter any negative media about the

Having read it perhaps one of the frequent visitors(4 this morning) from ESCC could explain why the council should spend time and money glorifying their own stupid ideas and using propaganda (lies if you like) to brainwash the public into believing they are doing something worthwhile.

Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels was the master of the “big lie” tactic in which a lie, no matter how outrageous, is repeated often enough that it will eventually be accepted as truth. Goebbels explained:

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

Another couple of quotes from WW2 that may apply.

"tracers work both ways"

"heavy flak indicates that you are near the target"
